No matter who Miller winds up touring with, life on the road without the other 97’s will be an adjustment. He’s recently married, for one (sorry, ladies), and his wife, model Erica Iahn, is along for the bus ride. "We’re going to take the back lounge as our bedroom, like Ozzy Osbourne does," he says. "If it were the 97’s, that might be a hard sell. But as it is, I’m the boss now."

Despite losing his bachelor status, Miller will continue penning his songs about heartbreak and failed romance. "I don’t really have a choice," he says, citing a new self-deprecating track that pokes fun at his obsession with losing the right girl. "I knew when I put that on the record I would live to regret it a little bit, but it’s just too true. As I say on my record, ‘This is what I do.’"
